Adelaide Symphony Orchestra will perform John Williams' score live in Star Wars movie concert
LUKE Skywalker will have the force of the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra behind him at a special concert next month.
ASO musicians will perform John Williams’ Oscar-winning score live to the original film in Star Wars: A New Hope In Concert at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre Arena on September 15.
Cor anglais player Peter Duggan, double bassist Belinda Kendall-Smith, violinist Alexis Milton and trombone player Ian Denbigh dressed up as iconic characters for a Sunday Mail photo shoot.
Mr Denbigh said the film helped him discover orchestral music.
“I saw the original Star Wars in 1977,” he said.
“As the Imperial battlecruiser passed overhead and the orchestra erupted into a huge C major chord with brass fanfare, I was hooked. I had only started playing trombone the year before and to hear the difference that fantastic music could make to a dramatic film was inspiring.”
Sunday Mail readers have the chance to win an out-of-this-galaxy experience with the ASO.
